Tuesday’s Column: World Cup Countdown

It’s getting to be now or never for domestic-based players on the bubble for the U.S. World Cup roster.

Bonus quote –
Here’s Chivas USA midfielder Sacha Kljestan on Stuart Holden, who he observed is probably his main rival for a World Cup roster spot. The two have never played for the U.S. in the same XI, he said:

“When I was out of the team he was just coming into the team. There’s definitely a correlation between the two of us – we play a similar position, we play a similar style. Hopefully we both go, but we’ll see. He’s a good friend of mine, but it’s going to be tough. Maybe one of us will go, maybe neither of us will go.”
